The Republic of Iskanistan is a massive, cultured nation, ruled by Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri with an iron fist, and renowned for its barren, inhospitable landscape, pith helmet sales, and state-planned economy. The hard-nosed, cynical population of 2.636 billion Iskani are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The large, corrupt, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Education. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Baghdad. The average income tax rate is 63.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The Iskani economy, worth 162 trillion Dinars a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is a slick, highly efficient, fairly diversified black market in Arms Manufacturing, Trout Farming, Furniture Restoration, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 61,733 Dinars, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

No one gossips with Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri during diplomatic summits, the state has declared war on the environment and environmentalists by association, weird kids who eat bugs are breaking the law, and children are regularly married to each other to secure alliances between families. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Iskanistan's national animal is the Eagle, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Iskanistan is ranked 48,610th in the world and 7th in Union of Nationalists for Highest Average Tax Rates, with 63.78 Effective Tax Rate.
